I struggled this week with my 52-week project…soothing repetition was the theme. My friend Shelly gave me a great suggestion, but I was unable to find the object I needed so I had to go another direction. After a trip to the orthodontist with Zach and some lunch, we set out on a drive in the country in search of soothing repetition. Secretly, I was hoping for a road sign that would point me in the right direction for the inspiration I was seeking. In case you were wondering, there wasn’t one and trust me I looked. My GPS hadn’t heard of it either so I was on my own to find what I needed. So, after a few miles and more than a few hollers from Madeline, we stumbled upon this lake (and boy was I in need of some soothing right about then). Zach had his head phones on and was listening to his favorite tunes so he was immune to the war cry coming from Madeline. I pulled over and got out of my car to really look at the lake and trees. I was overwhelmed with the quiet peacefulness of the area. No cars, no people, no sirens, no radios, no crying from my sweet baby girl (when a girl needs a nap, she needs a nap!)…just quiet. I took a few steps away from the vehicle…grabbed my camera…and took a few shots. I spent a few more minutes enjoying the peace and tranquility before heading back into the crying zone. Surprisingly, when I got back into my car, I was happy to not hear Madeline, who had finally fallen asleep. 🙂
Next week, I hope to get back to people pictures! I am not a landscape photographer… :). I ♥ people photos!! Can’t wait to see what the new theme is for the MCP Project 52. I will also be blogging about some new products that I just received yesterday. Can’t wait to share them with you!!!
Happy Friday everyone!
